After their impossibly adorable combination engagement-slash-charity bow tie line announcement in September, Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson and fiancée Justin Mikita have officially launched Tie The Knot! The couple celebrated the collection, which raises funds for marriage equality, in Los Angeles last night, and talked to about the inspiration behind the Ferguson-designed line. "This first collection has the aesthetic of throwing everything against the wall and seeing what sticks," Ferguson joked. "Honestly, I’m absolutely new to this, so it’s trial and error with this first one. When we do our next collection, I’ll try and do something a little more cohesive with more of a through line—'a story' as Tim Gunn would say." Mikita added: "The one common thread is that they’re all very loud and colorful with quirky patterns. We don’t have any solids." You can shop the colorful bow ties ($25 each) now, exclusively at Additionally, the couple has shared that the first official beneficiary for the ties is the Human Rights Campaign; they will donate up to $200,000 from proceeds to the organization. Dapper duds and civil rights—it’s an unstoppable union!
